Sound, practical advice on managing and controlling diffuse source water pollution and watershed management

This new edition of Water Quality provides the latest tools to prevent and abate diffuse pollution, as well as innovative problem-solving approaches for water and soil resources damaged by diffuse pollution. The information and techniques presented here emphasize sustainability, protection, and restoration of resources, while also considering land-use ethics and socioeconomic aspects of abatement and preservation.

This Second Edition's substantially updated material covers significant advances made in understanding and controlling diffuse pollution, such as key information on atmospheric deposition, pollutant interaction with soils, models for estimating loading of diffuse pollution from land, predicting safe water and soil acceptance of residual pollution, and use of GIS technology. State-of-the-art technical and socioeconomic tools are presented for controlling and abating diffuse pollution in such areas as urban, highway, agricultural, and industrial environments, as well as for managing and restoring streams, lakes, and watersheds. Providing both national and international outlooks, new chapters are included describing the Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) process, and material in other chapters is extensively updated to reflect the latest regulatory guidelines and new information on major legal decisions.

Water Quality, Second Edition is a valuable reference for environmental engineers, scientists, civil engineers, students of these disciplines, and government and regulatory personnel.

Author Biography: VLADIMIR NOVOTNY, PhD, PE, is CDM Chair Professor at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts. He is also coauthor of Karl Imhoff's Handbook of Urban Drainage and Wastewater Disposal (with Klaus R. Imhoff, Meint Olthof, and Peter A. Krenkel), published by Wiley.
